Identity Fraud May Be Down But Your Guard Needs to Stay Up!

Fraud comes in many shapes and sizes and unfortunately, it will never go away. Nor will the money and time spent fixing it. That’s why it’s vital to ramp up your security arsenal.

While fraud operators are constantly developing new viruses, spyware and online fraud schemes, the good news is that you can take action to protect yourself against online fraud. Delve into this site to find out how.

Take the keys to consumer control: Prevention and Detection

Prevention stops identity theft at the source and protects your private data before it is compromised by fraudsters. Taking advantage of online bill pay and even good old fashioned paper-shredding contributes to your own online safety.

Early Detection is equally important. Successful detection includes records consolidation and the regular review of your financial accounts for unusual activity. Banking online gives you quick access to your accounts, so that you can detect fraudulent activity sooner.
